The deadline to enroll or renew a plan, which was originally today, was pushed back to accommodate for last month's "extreme winter weather," the NY State of Health said in a statement. Western New York and other parts of the state were covered in several feet of snow, making it unsafe for people to attend in-person enrollment activities, according to the NY State of Health. Nearly half of all people who enrolled in the open marketplace last year worked with someone in person.
